Originally founded in 1981 as Intermountain Administrators, the company's growth, expansion of services, and strategic direction led us to change our name to Allegiance Benefit Plan Management, Inc., on April 1, 2003. Changing our name was a way to put our service philosophy front and center. Our name, Allegiance, is a public statement that we are here to benefit you.
In 2008, Allegiance became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Connecticut General Life Insurance Company (CGLIC), a subsidiary of Cigna Corporation, when CGLIC purchased Allegiance’s holding company Benefit Management Corp. Allegiance Benefit Plan Management, StarPoint, Allegiance Life & Health Insurance Company and Allegiance COBRA Services are all subsidiaries of Benefit Management Corp. Allegiance represents Cigna’s strategy to compete in the market segment that desires TPA rather than fully bundled large carrier products. As a result, Allegiance has seen significant growth across the nation as a result of our affiliation with Cigna.
Our corporate spirit has always been one of allegiance to the companies we serve. Our people are deeply committed to our clients and to plan participants. We share your goals and work hard to help you control benefit costs through self-funding.
